State Services Commissioner Iain Rennie.
Just before Christmas I met State Services Commissioner Iain Rennie, who is keen to work with us for positive change. Our meeting was encouraging and I am excited about what the future could hold.
In the aftermath of the Roger Sutton case it was good that Mr Rennie took full responsibility for holding the joint press conference with Mr Sutton that allowed the former Cera boss a platform to trivialise events that led to his resignation.

But State Services Commissioner Mr Rennie's $610,000 to $619,999 pay package was eclipsed by those of several other public sector bosses, including NZ Super Fund chief executive Adrian Orr, who received $800,000 to $809,999 in the year to June, according to the commission's report on executive remuneration.
"Chief executive remuneration requires a careful balance between ensuring we can attract and retain highly qualified and skilled leaders for New Zealand's public institutions while being prudent and restrained when spending public money," said Mr Rennie yesterday.
He is on notice from State Services Minister Paula Bennett for botching the departure of Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority chief executive Roger Sutton, who resigned last month after an investigation into claims he sexually harassed female staff members.
Mr Rennie said the average increase in base salary for public service chief executives was 2.8 per cent.

Should Iain Rennie resign?
Pressure is mounting on Mr Rennie after it emerged he ignored advice from senior officials to exclude the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority boss from the press conference.
"I think it's fair to say that Iain is deeply remorseful for the fact that he was silly enough to hold that press conference on a joint basis - he should have held a press conference, just not one on a joint basis."
Mr Rennie had spent his working career dedicated to the service of others and the public service, he said.
"He will always have on his record now that in this particular instance, it could have been handled a lot better.
"But on the other side of the coin, do you simply say, if somebody makes one mistake like that, then that's the end of it?"
If Mr Rennie made a similar mistake, his career would be ended, Mr Key said.
When asked why Mr Rennie was not also publicly saying the press conference was a mistake, Mr Key told TVNZ's Breakfast show people would have to ask him that.
Mr Key told Newstalk ZB there had been "firm and frank" conversations between Mr Rennie and Ms Bennett.
Mr Little said these new details showed Mr Rennie was "unfit for the job".
"[Mr Rennie] accepts that it should have been handled differently ... More importantly, he has expressed his regret at any hurt his actions last Monday may have caused the woman who has come forward."
Mr Rennie said yesterday he had a number of advisers who gave him free and frank advice.
"I am confident this is what I received in this case. Responsibility for all decisions rests with me," he said.
